Welcome to Blessed Brown Wren. This is my blog where I share how God is working in my life.
My name is Kelly. I am a wife, mother, grandmother (the grandlittles call me Honey), and most importantly, a child of God.
My jobs include running my own business as an Organizing Coach and working in the admin department of the Children’s Ministry at our church.
How did the name Brown Wren come about? Well, years ago my Hubs started calling me his “Little Brown Wren”. You see, a wren is a busy little bird that loves to build a nest anywhere and in anything (just like me). A wren can be a bit noisy (like me) and it’s rear end tends to stick out (I added that part – not Hubs). I’m not a brightly colored tropical bird with a beautiful song, but rather a small, little backyard bird with a sweet song to sing – and a whole lot of nesting to do. My other blog, tidybrownwren.com is my place to share homemaking, organizing, cleaning, and healthy living tips. This blog is a place to share how God is blessing my life by getting me out “beyond the nest” and into the bigger things He has planned for me.
Over the past 10 years, I’ve had some pretty complicated physical problems. In 2011 I had a kidney transplant because of the failure of my kidneys due to inherited kidney disease (Medullary Cystic Kidney Disease). Two of our three children have it also.
In 2018, due to the immunosuppressants I took for the transplant, I developed a rare peritoneal cancer that resulted in the removal of many abdominal organs. Needless to say, I don’t take my health lightly and I feel blessed to be a walking miracle of God’s grace.
I hope you’ll join me in learning about “Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen. ” Ephesians 3:20-21 NIV
